Is it a fruit or a vegetable? Tomayto or tomahto? Canned, sun-dried, fresh or tubed? We've heard it all, but there's no question about the versatility and downright absolute necessity of having a jar of tomato sauce at the ready. Whether simmered or smeared, one jar offers tons of options beyond a plate of pasta.
For weeknight convenience, sub in tomato sauce for recipes that call for simmering canned tomatoes with onions, garlic and herbs; less work, same great flavour! Give that bottle a spin with one of these great dishes:
1. Cabbage Rolls 2. Buffalo Mozzarella & Tomato Pizza 3. Romesco Sauce
4. Tomato Mac & Cheese 5. Mussels Marinara 6. Cocktail Sauce 7. Meatloaf
8. Puttanesca Sauce 9. Chicken Enchiladas 10. Sloppy Joes
11. Eggplant Parmesan 12. Creamy Tomato Soup 13. Speedy Lasagna
